Hi Pammy. I'm sitting here eating something I just made from the oatmeal. JimmiesMom posted a scone recipe, which I love and have been using it a lot: I have made 2 modifications to this, I add a little more baking powder and about 1/8 tsp baking soda to make them a little more fluffy. I also make 3, not 4, and bake them about 12 mins on 350. Here you go, her original recipe...you can adapt my changes if you want, or not!.
1 packet Medifast Oatmeal of your choice (I prefer the maple/brown sugar).
1/8 tsp. Baking Powder.
2 TBSP splenda DIVIDED.
1/4 cup water + 1 TBSP water.
Cinnamon if desired (definitely tastes great in the brown sugar & maple scones).
1/2 tsp. vanilla.
Mix Oatmeal, 1 TBSP splenda & baking powder in small bowl (add cinnamon if desired). Add 1/4 cup water and vanilla. Stir well with spoon..
Spoon onto baking sheet sprayed with Pam - makes 4 "scones". Bake approx. 10 minutes or until done..
In separate bowl, mix 1 TBSP splenda with 1 TBSP water. Drizzle over scones when they are done cooking..
In addition you can search the Recipe thread for pancakes, and the best muffins are "Modified Oatmeal Muffins"..
Thanks for the recipe. I'll try preparing it tonight...
This is even easier: Pancakes from Sara B: Not a fluffy pancake but more like a french toast taste in pancake form..
The other day I tried something new with my oatmeal, which I love by the way!.
I took one package maple brown sugar Medifast oatmeal and mixed in about 1/4-1/2 cup eggbeaters to the dry mix, just enough to get it moist and to a thick pancake consistency...sprayed a pan with cooking spray, poured it in, spread it out, let it cook awhile, flipped, then upon plating I put a drizzle of sf vanilla syrup on, yum, tasted more like french toast than a pancake, but was a nice change of pace. oh yeah I also sprayed it with I cant believe it's not butter spray too! give it a try!.
Since you're only on a week I think you might find your tastes change and what you don't like today might taste better to you later. Lots of people are finding that..
Use the recipe forum...there are tons of recipes out there!..
I can relate to you on that. It was like eating wall paper paste. Now I mix up a batch of the "modified oatmeal muffins" and keep on hand to have each morning. I just spritze with a little butter spray and enjoy..
I have to try the scone recipe, sounds like a nice change...
I use more water than called for, add Saigon cinnamon and butter buds. I like all the oatmeals this way (except peach! blecchh!). I have an oatmeal every morning now that I use more water and it comes out less pasty. Hang in there, often things we initially find to be less than palatable become acceptable with time on MF...
I've been eating sandwiches made from bread made basically the same way as the french toast. only, I use 1/3 cup egg substitute...
I made the pancakes too mmmmmmmmmmm I tweaked them a little more added 1/8 baking powder, 1 tbsp splenda and 1 tbsp fat free half and half. Butter spray and sugar free maple syrup on them...
I have been making mine into cookies. Today I took a pkg. of oatmeal and a chocolate pudding. I added 1/4 t. baking powder and a dash of salt. I divided this into 2 parts.
Of walnuts, which is a snack for the day, a little vanilla and a third of c. of water. I dropped onto SPRAYED cookie sheet and baked at 375 for 10-12 min. Most people would probably want to add a little sweetner to this but I didn't since I don't like things that are too sweet. They are my new favorite food!..
